Hello

I have a 97 Ford250 HD reg cab and i just bought a brand new superduty 7.5 boss plow.

When the plow is on it looks like that tires are giving out. Like the front is riding on the inside of the tire.

I was wondering if there is something i can do to fix it

Thanks for the help
:D

No offense, but it means its a terrible setup. That is why you are having that problem. They tear up tires without a plow, with a plow i can imagine. Im not sure if you can get it aligned or not to try and compensate. Check with your local tire shop. That was truly a terrible design, anyone who knows about cars/trucks would agree. Mike

Install Timbrens or add a leafs to keep the tires straight with the plow on. Not the best solution (solid axle swap) but with an alignment it should help.

By the way I think a 7'6" plow is too small for that truck. 8ft minimum for a F250/F350 IMO.

My friend runs a 9ft Diamond (vey heavy) on his 95 250 with a TTB front end. We had to beef up the suspension. When the axle goes it may get the solid 350 front I have at my shop.

I had a 95 F-250 for a while with an 8' western on it. I put on Add-a-leafs on front because of the same problem you are having. One problem with the extra leaf is that the front end cannot be aligned within specs without the plow on the truck. When the plow is on, the truck can be aligned to exact specs. I ended up removing the leafs in the early spring and then having to re-install them when the snow started flying, having the truck aligned each time.
